Dear Golden Friends:
As most of you know from the last Gazette the date for the Mega Online Silent Auction has been changed to February 2018...

"For the Love of Goldens" Online Mega Auction
February 9th - February 14th, 2018 

For anyone just joining us we did this in response to the three hurricanes and the ongoing wild fires in California that are resulting in so much devastation, injuries and even deaths of people, domestic animals, and wild animals in unseen before  numbers.

Through YOUR SUPPORT, we were able to make direct financial donations to the three hurricane rescue sites we support and also a donation to our California rescue to help provide medical and supportive short term and long term care to the domestic and wild animals.

We posted in the last Gazette a list of CA Programs that need donations of money, all types of food and items small and large that they need to provide care. 

In the spirit of this posting we will donate the monies generated by our online Three Scoops of Vanilla jewelry event being held one day for GRSRS&EC by artist/owner Erin on Friday starting November 10th 12:01 AM EST and ending at 11:59 PM EST to provide domestic and wild animal medical care and permanent housing or reintroduction to the wild, to the California rescue program we support.

This jewelry event date was established last June as Erin likes to schedule the events quite a way ahead of the date it is held. We felt it is appropriate to hold this event and donate the monies generated to a 501(c)(3) organization in California that serves animals affected by this ongoing tragedy.

Thank you for sharing and supporting our program!

Sky's Helpful Hints!
(Sky Puglia is pictured right) 
J ust because it is almost winter does not mean that you, your friends, family and pets can not be infected with Tick Borne Diseases such as Lyme.

A little looked for disease that is transmitted by a tick is Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. It is easily transmitted by ticks but requires a totally different test that the ones run in a regular tick titer profile test. Never rule out Rocky Mountain Spotted Disease without having a test specific for this disease done. This disease can now be found throughout the country in both people and pets.

"My Golden Tessa died last fall from complete kidney failure brought on by this disease. Her tick profile was normal but when things became grave  the special test for Rocky Mountain Disease was done, she was positive but the treatment was too late and my sweet Golden at 11 years of age who spent most of her time inside our home, sunbathing with her friend Sky on the porch and when outside was in a fenced in dog yard filled with sifted sand...was infected with this tick borne disease and died , and not in a quiet painless manner...she was conscious and sick until she died. This message is being written today in Memory of Tessa on the day she passed last year as a cautionary message for all dog owners and people too."
